Back to all initiatives

The Belgian branch of chemical company Vynova in Tessenderlo can lay claim to a world first. The company has launched caustic soda or sodium hydroxide produced entirely with the use of renewable energy. Vynova was the first company in the world to receive the international sustainability certification ISCC PLUS for this.

Sodium hydroxide is used, for example, in the paper industry, in water treatment, as an intermediate in the manufacture of detergents and soaps and for demanding cleaning applications in food companies such as breweries or bakeries.
